Cotidianul (meaning The Daily in English) is a Romanian language newspaper published in Bucharest, Romania.

History and profile[edit]

Founded by Ion Raţiu, Cotidianul was first published on 10 May 1991[1] and was the first privately held newspaper in Romania following the Romanian Revolution of 1989.[2] The paper had its headquarters in Bucharest.[1] It was published Monday to Saturday in Berliner format.

Cotidianul ceased print publication on 23 December 2009[1] due to financial difficulties, but remains active as an online news source.[2] The owners announced the closure was temporary due to insolvency, but no buyers was found.[3][4]

Since November 2016, the newspaper appears again in print.[5]
